Update: December 2016
Been working on and off when time permits, just evenings an weekends, refurbing the donor bike where necessary (surprisingly little required really)
Designed and built battery box to fit 13 leaf modules, bit of a squeeze but they do fit in the frame, millimeter perfect!
Bought a Hydraulic Hand Crimping tool for the lugs on the 50mm2 cables - a must have!!
Fitted coolant Pump.
Almost ready to power it up now.
Update: 08/01/17 First motor runs on paddock stand successful!
Update: 10/02/17 Just received my new V5 - My bike is now fully registered and classed as an electric vehicle! Painless process that took just 3 weeks.... Good job done by DVLA for making it easy...
Paint now finished and just the side fairings to go on. Insurance arranged from April 1st. MOT in 2 weeks time and we should be good to go.
